Fin 2 Swim and Infant Aquatics is your best option when it comes to aquatic survival skills and family aquatic fun. Our highly-trained Instructors have a wide variety of backgrounds but have one thing in common: the desire to provide you and your family the best possible experience while providing your child with a foundation of swimming they can use for a lifetime.

We start with a focus on aquatic survival instruction for your infant or young child, ages 6 months to 6 years. All lessons for first time enrollees in California are one on one, 4 days per week for 4-6 weeks. After this, your child will be moved to our weekly group lessons for ongoing development and FUN! We offer a variety of options for your child's optimum swimming advancement. Private lessons are always available as well. First time New York student lessons are 5 days per week, for 4-6 weeks, for the survival series.

We also offer swimming lessons for adults. If you are fearful of the water, uncomfortable in the deep end or just want to learn the basic stokes, we can help you! With patience and care, you will learn to feel comfortable at any depth and you will be able to swim with confidence. What a wonderful feeling you will have, being able to safely enjoy the water with your family! Adult lessons may be private or with a small group. Adult lessons are held in 30 minute sessions, 3 lessons per week. It takes about 2-3 weeks to go from hesitant in the water to swimming all the way across the pool!
